Experts: Mardi Gras A Key Factor In New Orleans COVID-19 Outbreak

Louisiana Gov.

John Bel Edwards warns the state is seeing a worrying "trajectory" that could leave hospitals without ventilators by the end of next week.

Likewise, Business Insider reports Bel Edwards predicted they would run out of hospital beds just days later.

The governor issued a stay-at-home order last week after Mardi Gras celebrations in late February attracted thousands of residents and tourists to the city.

Experts say Mardi Gras was a key factor in the city's outbreak.
